Master's degrees often represent a continuation of studies and a refinement of academic focus. These courses tend to require a bachelor's degree for entry and typically take at least two years to complete.

What is a Master in Social Sciences? The social sciences are most often defined in terms of specializations. A prospective student is likely to encounter programs in areas such as anthropology, linguistics, economics, political science, sociology and history. However, there are also opportunities in this discipline for students who wish to pursue a hybrid or interdisciplinary program. In general, a social sciences master's degree takes students through an exploration of research methods and philosophy in addition to discussions of specific topics. These programs frequently feature projects requiring a blend of primary and secondary research, as well as extensive discussions, both written and verbal.

The ability to consider society from an academic perspective is often useful in many aspects of a graduate's life, from making travel more enjoyable to helping in personal relationships. Holding a master's degree might also provide a candidate with a certain level of initial credibility during the job search process.

Check with each institution for the most relevant tuition estimates. These figures vary depending on each school and might even change from year to year.

Many social scientists tend to graduate and go on to apply to doctoral programs. A PhD or other terminal degree programs might afford an opportunity for students to pursue specific interests through research. A social science master’s degree holder might find employment in any number of positions, depending on his or her specialization. Examples include data analysis, project management, fundraising or grant writing. There is also the possibility for graduates to qualify for corporate executive positions, such as vice president.

Each institution tends to offer distinct advantages. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
